‘Anza as Sutra (Ahadith 478-480)
Narrated ‘Aun bin Abi Juhaifa:
that he had heard his father saying, “Allah’s Apostle came to us at mid-day and water was brought for his ablution. He performed ablution and led us in Zuhr and ‘Asr prayers with an ‘Anza planted in front of him (as a Sutra), while women and donkeys were passing beyond it.”
Read about ‘Anza here.
Imaam’s sutra is enough for the whole congregation and anything passing beyond that sutra does not disturb one’s prayer, as already discussed under Hadith no. 474.
Narrated Anas Ibn Malik:
Whenever the Prophet went for answering the call of nature, I and another boy used to go after him with a staff, a stick or an ‘Anza and a tumbler of water and when he finished from answering the call of nature we would hand that tumbler of water to him.
Details under Hadith no. 154.
Narrated Abu Juhaifa:
Allah’s Apostle came out at midday and offered a two-Rak’at Zuhr and ‘Asr prayers at Al-Batha and an ‘Anza was planted in front of him (as a Sutra). He performed ablution and the people took the remaining water left after his ablution and rubbed their bodies with it.
